Innovative Drought and Flood Mitigation Projects

This publication evaluates four HMA project types that are considered by FEMA to be high performing. These project types--Aquifer Storage and Recovery, Floodwater Diversion and Storage, Floodplain and Stream Restoration, and Low Impact Development/Green Infrastructure--are evaluated based on the HMA program requirements: technical feasibility and effectiveness; cost effectiveness; and Environmental and Historic Preservation requirement consistency. In addition, potential for program activity overlap with other federal agencies, known as Duplication of Programs, is examined with appropriate consideration of opportunities for federal agencies to successfully coordinate to fund these project types from more than one federal program.
